FORMULA

Empirical: a(n) = (1/13440)*n^8 + (1/3360)*n^7 + (1/576)*n^6 + (41/240)*n^5 - (9419/5760)*n^4 + (2009/160)*n^3 - (70291/2016)*n^2 + (42649/840)*n - 29 for n>1.

Conjectures from Colin Barker, Mar 11 2018: (Start)

G.f.: x*(4 - 23*x + 87*x^2 - 215*x^3 + 349*x^4 - 353*x^5 + 219*x^6 - 84*x^7 + 25*x^8 - 6*x^9) / (1 - x)^9.

a(n) = 9*a(n-1) - 36*a(n-2) + 84*a(n-3) - 126*a(n-4) + 126*a(n-5) - 84*a(n-6) + 36*a(n-7) - 9*a(n-8) + a(n-9) for n>9.

(End)
